    Join us for this quiet day of meditation in our community, an opportunity to sit one, two or all twelve. Make your intention known to those you ask for a pledge in your personal page. Our Sit-A-Thon is a fundraiser to provide support for the Shambhala Meditation Center of New Haven. It is based on the walk-a-thon model; sponsors pledge a flat dollar amount for the participant's full or partial day of sitting meditation.

    The resources we raise will contribute to this year's two top priorities: First, there is an overwhelming need to replenish our rainy-day fund and the upkeep of our center to accommodate the ever growing demand for programs here. The local sangha is incredibly energized and dedicated to growing our presence in a part of the city that has a brilliant potential to embrace mindfulness.

    Our next priority is to further strengthen our core infrastructure. Specifically, we are seeking to offer more support for members who assume critical leadership roles in the form of small stipends for teaching and learning opportunities at Learning and large urban Centers that will help us build and keep passionate and inspiring leadership.

    By supporting the Shambhala Center of New Haven in this way, you support our ability to offer meditation programs and events. As well, it allows us to expand our role and participation in the Greater New Haven area to help create an enlightened society. Thank you for your support!

    Our Combined Goal For All Shambhala Meditation Center of New Haven is $5,000.
